Chevy Chase coming to Fox Theatre to talk about ‘Christmas Vacation’ Nov. 28

The ‘Vacation’ star is now 77.

Chevy Chase, the comedic actor known for his work on “Saturday Night Live,” the “Vacation” films and “Community,” will be coming to the Fox Theatre Sunday, Nov. 28, to talk about “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation,” now a holiday staple.

The film will be screened, followed by Chase himself on stage to talk about the movie and take questions from the audience. He will share stories about his long career and other classic movies he has made such as “Foul Play,” the “Fletch” films and “Caddyshack.”

Tickets go on sale Sept. 10 at 10 a.m. at foxtheatre.org. The Fox posted an item about this event on Facebook Monday. The ticket prices range from $45 to $75.

Since his departure from “Community,” Chase has not gotten a lot of work. He has had a reputation over the years of being difficult.

In a Washington Post profile in 2018, the reporter Geoff Edgers wrote, “Chase is eager to work. But these days, he’s more likely to be fielding another round of bad press than a promising pitch,” adding, “there is an entire body of work devoted to casting Chase as a nasty, bitter egomaniac who spreads bad cheer whenever he’s within winking distance of a camera.”

Chase, who had a difficult childhood, is a complex figure. “I’ve already done what I’ve done. I can’t change anything,” Chase told the Post. “And I’m old. I don’t have to worry about what I did anymore. I know who I am. People know who I am who know me. And I’m proud to be who I am. Because I care about people, I care about feelings. I care about warmth, love. It’s everything.”
